The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett expects the Lions to again use a running back by committee approach this season.
As they have been for the past couple years, and that doesn't look like it's going to change under new coach Matt Patricia, who retained OC Jim Bob Cooter. The Lions have added LeGarrette Blount to the stable, which also included pass-down back Theo Riddick, all-around-does-nothing-great Ameer Abdullah, and depth guys Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington. The Lions are also expected to add a back in the draft. Blount is the best bet for touchdowns as it stands here on April 11, while Riddick is the clear favorite for catches. This backfield should again be a weekly mess that will be wholly unpredictable from a fantasy standpoint. Apr 11 - 1:19 PM
